DNA cell cycle analysis is affected both by the type of instrument used and the binding dye Ryan Duggan and David Leclerc The University of Chicago Flow Cytometry Facility, Chicago, IL, USA Conclusions Introduction CENs were stained with a final concentration of 5μM of the DyeCycle dyes and 50micrograms per milliliter of PI and DAPI for 30 minutes at room temperature. Fresh Sp2/0 cells were stained with the DyeCycle dyes and DRAQ5 with a final concentration of 5 μM at 37°C for 30 minutes. Sp2/0 cells were fixed with 70% iced cold ETOH and stained with a final concentration of 5μM of the DyeCycle dyes and 50micrograms per milliliter of PI and DAPI for 30 minutes at room temperature.

In our hands, the DyeCycle violet and orange provided the best results. This information could potentially save a lot of time and effort when planning a DNA analysis experiment. As indicators of respectively resolution power and linearity of the detector, the CV of the G0/G1 population and the ratio of the G2/G1 signal can provide valuable insight of the instrument performance. As for instrumentation, there is certainly some linearity issues associated with our FACSCalibur, however both the newer digital systems, the Gallios and the LSRII showed linear results.

Data was acquired at a rate of 100-300 events/second. The choice of a cell cycle dye and instrument are critical elements in a successful cell cycle analysis experiment. Here, we illustrate the predictive potential of using Chicken Erythrocyte Nuclei (CEN) as a tool to choose the most appropriate binding dye and instrument. Also, using a variety of cell cycle dyes and three distinct flow cytometry platforms, a BD LSRII, a Beckman Coulter Gallios and a BD FACSCalibur, we analyzed two parameters, the CV of the G0/G1 population and the G2/G1 ratio, as indicators of the instrument performance. Keeping those factors in mind when planning a cell cycle analysis experiment is key for the acquisition of quality data. Program No. 161
